Slab Leaks in Orange County
Our Anaheim Plumbers Are Slab Repair Specialists
A slab leak in your home is often very difficult to detect. Common symptoms of a slab leak are high water bills, warm spots on the floor, or excess water near your foundation. At Tom Moffett Plumbing, we specialize in slab leak repair. Our Orange County plumbers have the experience to isolate the location of the slab leak and professionally repair it.
Slab leaks are usually the result of a number of different factors:
- Soil that may cause a chemical reaction when coming into contact with the copper pipe, causing it to breakdown
- A water pipe that was not wrapped properly during the construction process, causing wear between adjacent pipes, soil, or pebbles. This wear, even though slight, can develop a hole in the pipe over time
- A water pipe that was properly installed during the plumbing phase of construction may require repair due to damage by other contractors such as drywallers
Regardless of the cause, we can diagnose the problem and give several options as to the best course of action.
How We Repair Your Slab Leaks
There are many different ways to repair slab leaks. The slab leak repair professionals at our Orange County plumbing company determine the most cost effective procedure yet create a solution that will completely take care of the problem.
Here are a few of the options that our pipe or slab leak repair plumbers may employ:
Jackhammer the slab - This procedure opens up the slab where we can visually find the leak. This tends to be the most economical procedure as well as provides the opportunity to properly repair the leak.
Rerouting of water line - There are times when a leak occurs underneath expensive fixtures like bathtubs or showers, or under very expensive flooring where the cost of repair may be prohibitive. In this case, we would reroute the water pipes to take the broken water line out of the system. New water lines could be rerouted around where the expensive fixtures or flooring are located. In other cases, we will route the water lines into the walls or ceiling.
Tom Moffett Plumbing highly recommends that a slab leak is addressed and repaired immediately. Water leaks can be detrimental to the structural integrity of your home with the formation of mold as well as an excellent place for termites to nest. Plus, if a known slab leak is neglected, it is possible for some insurance companies to reject any claims for subsequent water damage.
